Another Canadian falls

halls of macadamia/

A Canadian soldier, on his fourth tour in Afghanistan, has been killed by an improvised explosive device in Kandahar’s volatile Panjwai district.

Sergeant James Macneil, a 28-year-old from Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, had been recently promoted and honoured as the Top Master Corporal in 2 Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group.
He will be remembered.

If he is repartriated during the summits I hope the entire ceremony is shown on those screens at the media center, and the tributes on the Highway of Heros, to show the world how we honor our fallen.
Sympathy to the family and the troops. RIP.
